For most of the wild things on Earth, the future must depend upon the conscience of mankind.

This blog serves to provide information on the conservation efforts of zoos and their effectiveness in various aspects, including animal welfare and protection of endangered species and biodiversity. It also serves to elucidate on the ongoing argument between critics and supporters of zoos. Ultimately, it is hoped that this blog will leave readers with more insight on the zoo system and their own opinion on whether or not it should be sustained as a measure for conservation of biodiversity.
